Gazimestan

Gazimestan (Serbian: Газименстан, ) is the name of a monument commemorating the historical Battle of Kosovo, situated about 6-7 kilometres north-northeast of the actual battlefield, known as Kosovo Field (Serbian: "Косово Поље", "Kosovo Polje"), or in Albanian: "Fushë Kosovë/Fushë Kosova". The monument was designed by Aleksandar Deroko and built in 1953 under the authority of the Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia. It is in the shape of a medieval tower. Gazimestan is reached from the Lazarevo-Mitrovica highway, on a 50 m hill above the plain.
